As much as we love new, hip boutique hotels, there's something to be said for the grandes dames of the world: Raffles Singapore, The Plaza in New York, or the Ritz Paris. Trips to these cities wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of these renowned hotels. Even if you haven't booked a stay, they need to be seen; at the very least, make sure to order a drink at one of their storied bars. And what exactly makes a hotel legendary? It’s a mix of the hotel’s history, architecture, and famous guests—and a whiff of scandal doesn’t hurt, either. Here’s our look at 15 of the world’s most legendary hotels.

But, I can also add some great hotels from Rajasthan like Samode Palace, Umaid Bhawan. Plus you also check this Rajasthan tour package by ED Paschke Holidays. Plus in India one can also found hotels which were once royal palace of Indian monarchs.
